Abu Dhabi — Art Marine, the region’s largest and best-known 360-degree leisure marine enterprise, announced the opening of Abu Dhabi’s first high-end marine leisure boutique at the Emirates Palace Hotel as part of its UAE expansion strategy.

Having successfully managed the Emirates Palace Marina for the last three years, they have now been appointed for a further three year tenure. The boutique, focused on the iconic Riva brand — part of the Italian Ferretti Group — and located alongside the exclusive Marina, is the result of boat owner requests made specifically to the Emirates Palace Management, including new yacht purchases, technical maintenance, and everything from valeting services to marine products and fishing equipment.

Art Marine, the 100 per cent owned portfolio company of The Abraaj Group, appointed CEO Gregor Stinner in June 2013 to reinstate stardom prestige, credibility and presence in the market and this opening is a further testament to his success in building a legacy.

Gregor Stinner said: “With expanding our footprint in the UAE, we complement our growing international reach, which stretches as far afield as China. Emirates Palace is the most exclusive and prestigious of the UAE marinas and we are honoured to provide the VIP yachtsmen moored there with a unique concept showroom to answer all their needs. Continuing a successful month with the Qatar International Boat Show, we are delighted to end the year with this momentous landmark in the company’s on-going expansion and evolution.”

The boutique will not only focus on luxury brand yachts sales, but also offer to the marina berth holders and yacht owners a well diversified chandlery, as well as valet and maintenance service, warranting 360 degree leisure yachting services to ultimately take care of their precious yachts. It will also stock Williams tenders, for which Art Marine are the exclusive distributor and dealer in the UAE and Qatar.
